Have you ever wondered about what things are going to be like in the future?  Ever wish you could solve your problems before they happen?  Ok, yup. Me too.

Well, today you’re in for a real treat because we get to talk with one of the world’s leading futurists on global trends and innovation, Daniel Burrus. He’s a true Thriver and is passionate about empowering people all over the world to be anticipators as opposed to agile, fast reactors.

Daniel sold his four businesses which were then financially rewarding in their first year of establishment to focus on what he loves doing “Teaching” (hear more about that right in the intro).

His research and consulting company has been running for 35 years now and his accomplishments are immeasurable; New York Times and Wall Street Journal Bestseller, Keynote Speaker, Business adviser, and Innovation Expert. Daniel is also an author for the Harvard Business Review and Fast Company. He has created an Online Learning System that received Product Award of the Year and is being used by the Pentagon for their Leadership Training.  Based on his Teaching; Concept of Testing, he has also written his most recent book around the Learning System “The Anticipatory Organization”

Daniel has given over 3000 keynote speeches all over the world to congregations of as much as 16,000 people and even of smaller group as 6. He is also one of the first influencers invited by LinkedIn.

Tune in as we talk about Transformation, Trends, Future view, Questioning, how to anticipate disruption and become a disruptor and much more. Whether you’re in business or you’re not, this conversation will get you thinking differently about your future (in a good way of course) 

By being actively anticipatory, you can see so many problems that you were about to have and pre-solve them so that you can move forward instead of being stuck
